Step 1: Materials
For the first part of this project, you'll need a jar (plastic or glass), glow stick (color choice is yours), scissors, a printable or see through design, glitter (optional), and some napkins.
Step 2: Pouring It In
Next, after you open the jar, cut both sides of the glowstick (to make it pour faster) and pour it in the jar. Also, if you decided to use glitter, pour that in here as well. This is where you'd use the napkins because this step gets messy. (Note: glow sticks typically last for about 2 hours, as will your glow-in-the-dark jar.)
Step 3: Shake
After securing the lid tightly, shake the jar until the inside substance of the glow stick (and glitter) are spread and visible all throughout the jar.
Step 4: Design (this Step Can Also Go First)
For your design, your creations can be endless. Personally, I'm using a see-through ghost design (for the Halloween theme) but you don't have to (another idea is to cover in masking tape, draw on design with sharpie and then use a knife to cut around it). For my way of getting it to stick, I'm using just some clear colored tape that you can see-through.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Your design (depending on the way you did it) should look relatively similar to the picture below. This is where you can add whatever else you want to personalize your jar (stickers, etc) and finish up your quick, and easy new glow-in-the-dark decoration.
